Raised by vampyre relatives, Jane grows to resent the lifestyle's effect on her upbringing. No sunlight, nighttime hours, and a diet of bloody red meat is no way for a mortal girl to live. Things change for Jane when the ghost of her uncle visits her, imparts her parents' slayer history, and charges her with the responsibility of striking out to find others of her kind and learn the slayer ways.

After trying her luck at a school full of zombies, Jane finds a position as a governess, where she meets and falls in love with Mr. Rochester. But evil strikes in the form of Mr. Rochester's first wife, a violent werewolf he keeps locked in the attic. Jane departs to study the slayer tradition with her cousins, but finds herself yearning to reunite with Mr. Rochester. She returns to find that Mr. Rochester has been bitten by the werewolf, and only she can release him from his curse.

    " I am usually weary of adaptations or remakes of novels, especially those recently concerned with the hybridization of victorian period pieces and monsters. This was case in point with Pride & Prejudice & Zombies, an awful example of the author copy and pasting paragraphs involving zombies at random parts of Pride & Prejudice. Such was not the case with Jane Slayre. Jane Eyre was in itself not terribly interesting (I gave it two of five stars) but Jane Slayre managed to take the novel and imbue it with zombies, vampires, and werewolves in such a way that the monsters weren't just a periphery to the main story. I was rather impressed and believed that the author really put forth effort in properly making the story not just about Jane Eyre who happens to interact with monsters, but rather Jane Slayre, who was born a Slayer and found her role rather effortlessly through the deaths of monsters. I didn't give this book above four stars not because I held Jane Eyre in high esteem but rather because the book was still hard to read when it wasn't about zombies, vampires, and werewolves. Nevertheless, I recommend this hybrid to others. "

    " In general, I really liked this book. I found it to be a pretty good parody of one of my favorite classics. "

    " Sorry to Bronte but this so made me laugh. Out loud. "

    " I must confess that I am getting rather tired of all these "smash-up" genre books. I only gave this a chance because it was based on my favorite book. I have to say that I found the added bits not nearly as interesting as the original story and text. I guess I am too much a fan of "Jane Eyre" to be swayed. "
